And how do we get a vaccine distributed to the public once it has been approved for use by the FDA were also very focused on health disparities. We know that the current virus has Had a disproportionate impact on communities of color, for instance, and so we're going to be very focused on making sure that those disparities are addressed. There is a much deeper bench of Doctors, scientists, public health experts that comprise the transition team who've been working on policy and plans for months now on so some of our role is the advisory board is to lay a second set of eyes on these plans to be sort of the big thinkers, big idea generators and to raise questions about the implementation of these plans. There are many people who have been working on how do we implement the nuts and bolts of this in the coming months? So the plan is to be ready on day one to jump right in on this. Do you have any indication that anybody until day one from the White House transition team might soften up and give you any help on this? Well, I certainly hope so. I am optimistic that there will be an understanding that this is the right thing to do in service of the nation and to protect both the nation's health and economy. Do you think that we will need more than one vaccine one type of vaccine cause the one that we talked about this week needs to be kept in 100 degrees below zero. I mean, how can you Transport that and give it out to the rest of America. If it really needs that kind of condition to survive Well, it certainly will make distribution much more complicated. The average general practitioner family doctor does not have that kind of deep freeze capacity. You're really looking at commercial pharmacy in hospital kinds of facilities that would be able to do that. But I do think it's important to remember that the visor vaccine is not the only promising vaccine in the pipeline. It might be the one that's coming out first with a FDA emergency use authorization, But there are a number of others in the pipeline. Some that do not require deep freezing Some that are only a single dose, as opposed to two doses. So I think what you're going to see is the distribution of a number of different vaccines, and these will be targeted. Two different populations to different geography is based on what makes Sense in terms of the characteristics of the vaccine and also the supply chain. So you're hopeful about all of this progressing. I am cautiously optimistic, and I think what I'm most optimistic about is that science and not politics is really going to lead the way here. I can't remember the light. The last time I ever heard President elect and a vice president elect mentioned the word science and their speeches. You know, it's funny. I had some friends reach out and you know they were congratulating me on on the role, and they said that they had tears in their eyes. Not just that, You know it was me, but rather that scientists and doctors and public health experts We're going to be leading the charge. These are friends of mine who are also healthcare providers have been working in the trenches who have felt completely disempowered and neglected for months and have really been terrified by what they're seeing head in terms of new infections, and I can't tell you how relieved they were to hear that people were really going to be pushing. For scientific approach to this. What a concept Science. Thank you, Dr Gounder. My pleasure. Dr. Celine Gounder is an assistant professor at the N Y. U. Grossman School of Medicine and a newly named member of the Biden Coronavirus Task Force. Thank you again for taking time to be with us today. Good to be here. Joining me now to talk more about the task force and the government's covert policy during the presidential transition is Lev Fashir, Washington correspondent First stat. Welcome to science Friday. Thanks so much for having me. Let's talk about some of the members of the task force named by the Biden team this week. Who are they? Is there any common theme here? I think the common theme I've heard the term a lot this week. The 18. I think people are really, really pleased at the caliber of scientists and public health officials. From academia from past administrations from local governments from.
"biden coronavirus task force" Discussed on NewsRadio KFBK
"His He really wants to push forward with these vaccines. The medical part of it just keeps going forward. I know this is what I and my colleagues do every day one getting the message to the American people like we're trying to do this morning, but also pushing ahead on the development of vaccines and on countermeasures. That was kind of in the realm of what if you're fired. What if you're fired? He said. I'm not gonna be fired. Back to the What? The new doctor on the new Biden Coronavirus Task force, Dr Celine Gounder. Responded to what Dr Fauci was just talking about. Well, look, it would certainly be wonderful if the administration would cooperate with the transition team and help US plan for the takeover. But I do think it's important to understand that it's not as if the transition team is sitting and waiting. People have been a very deep bench of scientists and policy experts and others have been spending months planning for what we're going to do once we're in charge of running the this response. On DSA. There are detailed protocols and in development at this time, I think it's also he to understand that it's not just about the federal government. It's also about state and local health departments as well as the private sector and we very much her able to communicate with all of those parties at this time and start to plan. By the way of somebody sent me this the other day when the visor announcement came out, and I saw it a couple of other places, but I haven't mentioned it on this show for this audience, but Fizer was not part of Operation Warp speed. No. They said We don't want government money. We're that We're not taking a penny of government money. On. We're manufacturing. This is fastest we can. We've got enough for 50 million doses, which is 25 million people in their manufacturing as quick as they can. But it they were really pounding their chest about Look at us. We're not Part of the government program. We're doing this on our own, which gives me even more reason to want it. Take the Fizer vaccine. Stephen, California. Let's get you in before the break. Hi, Steve. No. Hello. Okay? The brakes coming up pretty quick, But we got you in But you're eating up time. Hello? Yeah, I'm a guy that doesn't get any sorts of vaccines for the flu or anything. But now that I learned that this Either. Vaccine is 90% effective and it doesn't have any current virus. It is. It's made from RNE and DNI to I think I might be on board. It's a very good point. I don't think a lot of us know about the Orange versus Dnepr, but it it is a breakthrough. And how medicine is going to be treating viruses in the future. This is going to be beyond the covert virus. So I'm with you, Steve. It made a big difference a swell because of the fact there isn't a dead coronavirus in it. Anyway, I got glad we got you in. Unlike most ta coasts,.

Former surgeon general Vivek Murthy and former FDA Commissioner David Kessler are expected to be on that panel, which also includes a local Boston doctor as well.
